The Cannes film festival reaches this year’s honorary Golden Palm from the 83-year-old actor Alain Delon to his fantastic presence in the film world to honor’, so the messages the organizers of the film event Wednesday. The festival this year celebrates the 72nd edition.
“The president of the Cannes film festival, Pierre Lescure, is satisfied that the Alain Delon this prize,” says general delegate Thierry Fremaux. ‘Delon has, however, hesitated, because he didn’t get to Cannes wanted to come, unless to the directors, to celebrate which he worked.’
In the sixties, it was Delon, famous all over the world with movies like ‘Rocco e i suoi fratelli’ (1960), ‘Plein Soleil’ (1960), ‘Le Samouraï’ (1967), and ‘Il gattopardo’ (1963). That last film at Cannes it won the Golden Palm for best film.
Delon played in his film career, in more than eighty films. In the course of his career he worked with great directors such as Luchino Visconti, Jean-Luc Godard, Michelangelo Antonioni and Jean-Pierre Melville.
The 72nd edition of the Cannes film festival runs this year from 14 to 25 may.
